The Nepal Medical Council (NMC), which was founded in 2020 BS, is responsible for registering certified doctors and allowing them to practice safe contemporary medicine. The Nepal Medical Council now performs a major role in the country, from registering doctors to conducting licensing exams, monitoring, and regulating medical education.

The responsibility of the National Medical Council (NMC) in medical education is being changed to the Health Professional Education Commission (HPEC) with the implementation of the new Health Professional Education Commission (HPEC) Bill. NMC along with the above-mentioned role will also concentrate on the following important areas of work.

  • Medical license examinations and expert examinations should be held to higher standards
  • Establish and enforce medical practitioners’ Continuous Professional Development
  • In all aspects of healthcare, NMC will monitor, encourage and enforce the ethical medical practice

Medicine is one of the oldest and most recognized professions; it allows you to affect human life in a really unique way, and the job satisfaction you receive is incomparable.

Medicine is a service, not merely a job, in which one must put others first. The hard work and endless hours required to study medicine may appear to be a daunting endeavour, but the ability to save lives is well worth the effort.

Nepal produces thousands of doctors every year and there are few who study abroad and become a doctor. To begin their medical professions in Nepal, all MBBS and BDS graduates must pass the Nepal Medical Council licensing exam.
